Angela was an Italian woman, who after losing her parents and her sister, saw the plight and lack of education and opportunity for young women. She began to teach them and founded a community of consecrated women. This community was never recognized as a religious order in her lifetime, but they became the Ursulines, the first women religious group to work outside the cloister and it was the first teaching order of women. Grapes are a sign of the Eucharistic blood, which was very important to her.
